Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. From The Grauniad:

    The story is here.

    This is getting simply ridiculous. How on earth can anyone read the last statement without wanting to punch John 'Oh fcuk - not Health' Reid's head in?

    Cnut. :evil:
  2. It's modernisation, the way ahead :lol:
  3. Things can only get better.

    Everyone benefits.

    And we have to start saving up to pay for the Olympics.
  4. I've wondered about this.

    HMS Ocean Is esentaly an Invincible class with nobs on. And we've got three Invincible classes going spare....

    Now I know that it's to simple and too much like comon sense to do a refit on them.. but still. And we can keep it in port most of the time, just attach each one to a RM Comadno Regiment.

    (PS: Yes I know HMS ocean has a hell of alot of improved elctronics on it, but you'd think the Carriers would have a fair old number as well.)

    What's Next, HMS Scimitar to be the prototype for our destroyer's? you know the ones intending to supplment and eventualy repalce the Type 45's...
